Comfort break

Thankfully, there aren't many live programmes from New Broadcasting House on a Sunday - but it was no comfort to staff that the building was without running water for a time yesterday. Group emails asked staff to use toilets in 'Old' Broadcasting House instead.

The business of "broadcast continuity" gives well-paid employment to many in the BBC, and grand committees sit and ponder pompously on a weekly basis - but the discussion is usually about security, electricity, computers and air-conditioning. Maybe they should add a new column to their checklist.

  1. Any old irony: 'Old' Broadcasting House is built over a well - it used to be used as the building's technical earth.
